This edition contains 170 quantitative questions from actual investment banking, investment management, and options-related job interviews. Interviewers use the same questions year-after-year and here they are---with solutions! There are also 125 non-quant actual finance interview questions, plus a section on interview technique. That¿s almost 300 actual questions collected in one book! First published in 1995, this is the original book on quantitative job interview questions in Finance. The latest edition incorporates 15 years of constructively critical feedback from job interview candidates. In mid-2009, approximately 50,000 copies are in print (one third were sold to interviewers). No competing book comes near this level of readership. No competing book has been painstakingly revised over so many years to incorporate feedback from so many readers. The first edition contained questions collected from job candidates. Nowadays interviewers at top firms often contribute their latest questions directly. These questions come from all types of interviews (corporate finance, sales and trading, quant research, etc.), but are especially likely in quantitative capital markets job interviews. The questions come from all levels of interviews (undergrad, MBA, PhD), but are especially likely if you have, or almost have, an MS/MBA. Only a few are PhD questions. The questions cover pure quant/logic, financial economics, derivatives, and statistics. Every quant question has detailed solutions/advice. An option pricing appendix that appeared in early editions was carved out and is now available as an expanded stand-alone book (see Basic Black-Scholes ISBN=0970055242).
